Chicken And Dumplings Recipe

The soothing and delectable Old Fashioned Chicken And Dumplings Recipe is a family favorite dish! The delicate dumplings and succulent chicken in this simple recipe are made from scratch with a quick homemade broth.

At the beginning of this meal, a whole chicken is cooked with vegetables and seasonings until it is perfectly soft. Simple dumplings are cooked in the broth until they are plump and soft using items found in the cupboard. This is a favorite among the family and will be asked for repeatedly!

A good ol’ comfort meal at its finest is homemade chicken and dumplings. Even though I adore quick and simple Crock Pot chicken and dumplings, nothing compares to a home-cooked meal.

The process of making authentic chicken and dumplings from scratch is much simpler than you might imagine. The majority of the time is spent allowing the chicken to cook to absolute tenderness and the broth to simmer until it is tasty.

On the stove, chicken, onions, and carrots are cooked at the beginning of this meal. I use a large onion when cooking the soup and leave the skin on to give the broth more color and taste. Feel free to include your preferred herbs, such as fresh parsley, a bay leaf, and a small amount of chicken spice. Once cooked, the chicken and veggies are taken out of the soup.
